I don’t even know where to begin with this video:
- I need to figure out the difference between a “Saul anointing” and a “David anointing”
- White said that the fact that Trump is not a “polished” politician is a sign that he has been raised-up by God. I assume that White is drawing here on the longstanding Christian idea that God uses the weak, poor, and uneducated to serve his purposes. But does he use the “unpolished?”
- White equates opposition to Trump with opposition to the “hand of God.”
- White says, “We were not sent here to be a part, we were sent here to take over.” After White says this, Jim Bakker equates “taking over” with “the church.”
- Bakker says that “God has raised [Paula White] up to the White House.
- Bakker says “Paula White…can walk into the White House any time she wants to. She has full access to the King…” Are Trump’s Christian advisers “court evangelicals?” Bakker and White make the case for me. They are there to serve the King.
- Somewhere along the way Jonathan Cain, the guy who wrote “Don’t Stop Believing,” started buying into this brand of Christianity. He is married to White and is sitting to her left.
- Jim Bakker holds the pen Trump used to sign the meaningless executive order that many court evangelicals believe repealed the Johnson Amendment. (It did not). White says that when Trump signed the order she felt like “the heavens had opened.”
And then there is this:
Why bother with this stuff? Because these are the people who are apparently advising the President of the United States.
